Brazilian Embroidery beginner's sampler

Here he is...

Indian Pride
(Click on the photograph for a better view)
I wish I could show it stretched and taut in a hoop - but the hoops I have are not big enough to show the complete design. I've washed the embroidered fabric but the yellow carbon marks have not gone yet. I guess I'll have to wash it a few more times to make it disappear.

So, that's it for now. The design is a little different from the usual wreaths and hearts - which would make it difficult for the hardcore traditional design enthusiasts to accept .Still, I think its a
good one for any beginner - 13 flowers and about 20 different stitches could be learnt here.

Oh, now I need to write down the instructions for the design for the sake of those coming to learn on July 3rd.I need to order threads and needles for them too. I just hope they reach here soon.

I've something totally different to show you in the coming posts. Do keep visiting.

Love,luck and sunshine,
Deepa

Hello Deepa, your peacock is so lovely! Thank you for visiting my peacock blog and leaving a comment. I'm glad you enjoy looking at my collection. I have some more that I want to embroider myself, but am trying to finish off other projects before I start anything new.
